Last of us remastered coming out next week?

#52
Any $10 upgrade plan expected? I would like to dump my PS3 version before the price falls even more - but if I can upgrade from disc I would just keep it.

I really doubt that. The best time would probably be sometime in July since I think that month is pretty bare. There are a number of games coming out in both August and September so those would be poor months to release it in.
I think it would be a wise move to release the game the day Microsoft shows all of their AAA games that would be influencing people to buy their console. I assume it would stop many from buying X1 and to buy a PS4 instead.

Makes sense almost a year exactly from ps3 release and E3 surprise. On a different note do you think these remastered games are even that difficult to make? It seems like an easy port, change settings from medium to ultra like a PC....done

I assume they are just saying next week is the time we will find out when it's being released, someone has probably got the wrong end of the stick.

Either a clever marketing ploy by the boffins at GAME Barnsley to up their pre-order numbers or some Yorkshireman's getting his P45 today.

Would be fantastic if true (not the P45 bit). May pre-order tonight just in case... damn I'm gullible.

I've been waiting a year to remote play TLOU. If i'm doing so in a week I'll be a happy bunny.

Would an announcement of a release date for a game being only a couple days away hurt day one sales or help? Has there ever been a"Hey this game is coming and oh yeah you can get it in two days." type of announcement?
Im pretty sure Nintendo announced NES Remix and Dr Luigi the day of release. Not sure if those count since they're digital releases. Cant think of it happening for a boxed game

So is TLOU multiplayer fun? What's it like?
The most fun i've had with any MP game last gen. it is different, tactical, encourages team play, and stays true to The Last of Us' single player experience. It will be my Mp game of choice for the PS4 for a long time.

I'd be very surprised that they would release it before firmly coming out one way or another on an upgrade path for those of us that have TLoU on PS3 and the Season Pass.

I suppose they still could though but I'd imagine if it were bad news i.e. no upgrade path, that they wouldn't hold onto that announcement until all cameras are on them during E3.

No one deserves an upgrade. You bought a ps3 game and a season pass for that game. If you don't want the ps4 version, don't buy it. If you want it, pay full price. There. Upgrade path.

I don't see why people give a shit about this. It is a port. Did people not play the original?

I am starting to 'regret' my next gen purchases because apart from FF XIV, which was cheaper than PC doing PS3->PS4, I am playing nothing but PC games and maybe a few minutes of the free games on PS+. My Xbone is even more idle.

Strange how we both used the exact same description.

Oh and jinx

I really do hope that sony offers a discount for people who bought the game last generation. I loved this game, and I would love to play it on my PS4, but I cannot justify paying $60 for this when it's clearly meant for all the people who switched to PS4 this time around.

Yep, looks like Sony was having this as an instant megaton. Something like: "Hey guys, we know all of the games shown here today are still far away to be released, but fear not! Here's a little something to compensate that: The Last of Us Remastered releasing tomorrow"
